Táirseach is shortlisted for Gradam Uí Shúilleabháin 2021, the Oireachtas na Gaeilge Irish book of the year award.
Dairena Ní Chinnéide is a prolific poet who writes from her heart and is an adept investigator of life in her poetry. In this new collection, Tairseach, Ní Chinnéide delves into in-between spaces, moving in the interspace and breathing the air. The poems in this collection are timely and firmly planted in the present as we are all navigating the spaces between two ways of life over the past year and a half. Ní Chinnéide feels the way forward for us and lights the space ahead.
